The Benefits Of Integrative Medicine - Treating The Whole Person

Feb 23, 2016

Acupuncture, acupressure, yoga, tai chi, mindfulness and other aspects of integrative medicine can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

As Americans become more health-conscious, more physicians and patients are opening up to a whole-person approach of preventative and curative treatments. Integrative medicine combines conventional Western medicine with complementary therapies such as mindfulness, acupuncture, yoga and healthy eating to treat the person, not the disease.

Joining us to explain the benefits of integrative medicine are Executive Director of the Center for Integrative Health and Wellness at the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center, Dr. Sian Cotton; UC College of Medicine Electrophysiology Section Director and Professor, Dr. Mehran Attari; and radiation oncologist and UC College of Medicine Visiting Professor, Dr. John Sacco
